2 in custody in connection with Troy murders

Two arrested in murder of mother, kids, partner in Troy, New York

They were arraigned in Troy City Court while several family members and reporters look on.

A property manager found 36-year-old Shanta Myers; her children, 11-year-old Jeremiah Myers and 5-year-old Shanise Myers; and 22-year-old Brandi Mells in a basement apartment along the Hudson River, just north of Albany on Tuesday. Authorities say the murders occurred December 21.

Their family got anxious when they didn't answer the phone, so they asked the property manager to check on them.

"After being in this business for nearly 42 years I can't describe the savagery of a person like this", Police Chief John Tedesco said this week as police searched for the killer.

"Nobody that's been involved in this case is going to ever forget this, I can tell you that", he added. "I'm not sure if they're coming for me next", the 15-year-old said. Both men are from Schenectady, N.Y. and one of the men has a connection to the family.

According to CBS 6's Steve Maugeri, both Mann and White have entered "not guilty" pleas.

The Times Union also reported that police recovered two knives near the victims, who were all in close proximity.

Preliminary hearings for Mann and White are scheduled for January 4.

Tedesco said that he's "confident" there will not be any more arrests in this case.

The Troy City School District, where the two children attended classes, will be offering grief counseling to students, Superintendent John Carmello wrote in a letter to parents. According to the page, money will be used to set up a scholarship and living expenses for the surviving child, Isaiah, 16, and to provide mental health services to the kids, families and the community. The Times-Union says Mann appeared to break down as he was led out of court.
